University of Wisconsin Geology Museum Environmental & Information Graphics
For the NASA funded exhibit, “Biosignatures – What Does Life Leave Behind?” we worked with the museum staff to create interactive informational graphics that portray life on early earth—before fossils. The challenge was to create engaging learning experiences around concepts that can’t actually be seen. In addition, these concepts and experiences needed to be accessible, informative and engaging to all audiences, from kids to professors emeriti.
A revised geologic timescale and a smell wall were among the tools and experiences that helped make the intangible and unseen truly fascinating.
